Favorite Quotes

"A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation. Lend and borrow to the maximum -- of both books and money! But especially books, for books represent infinitely more than money. A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold."


— Henry Miller

Moving to Brooklyn?

Brooklyn Follies

Title: Brooklyn Follies
By: Paul Auster

"I was looking for a quiet place to die." Why would anyone want to read a book that begins with that sentence I asked myself. Fortunately, I read the next few pages and was hooked. This is not a book about death and dying; this is a book about the celebration of life and living as the author introduces us to the characters who inhabit the Brooklyn neighborhood near Prospect Park. Nathan Glass thinks he has found a place to contemplate the end of his life. Instead he finds wonderful people who involve him in their lives, and he is able to reconcile his past. Enjoy spending some time in Brooklyn.
